Welcome and Announcements
*Praise Song “Time Now to Gather” SUMH # 2265
In this place, among these people,
God is worshipped, God is praised.
We have seen the signs and wonders;
the lost are found here, the dead are raised.
We are living the Gospel story;
lives are changed, and mountains moved.
Won’t you come and work among us?
You are welcomed, you are loved.
*Call to Worship
One: Receive life as a gift from God.
All: We will give generously to others from the gift of our lives.
One: Hear the words of your faith and rise to act.
All: We will be doers of the Word, acting out our faith and love.
One: Arise and come away.
All: We rise to serve with hearts overflowing with love.
